Indulge your senses with energizing food and elixirs that will support your active body.

Your Active Day Includes:

Join local fitness icon Alice Bracegirdle for a holistic dance fitness experience designed for you, the woman who is ready to find joy in movement!

Move through a guided Mindful Movement practice from an MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction) trained facilitator.

Experientially learn how to boost and sustain energy levels throughout the day with Min Pak, a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. Discover natural ways to manage your energy throughout the day with food and supplementation to keep you moving.

Enjoy a delicious nutritious lunch plus snacks (vegan, gluten free, dairy free options available).

Hear from Tanis Farish PhD about new research and perspectives in the area of women and exercise. Using a "world-cafe" methodology to encourage dialogue you will discover how movement is the way to greater happiness, connection and health.

Experience a movement practice that will help you forge a strong mind and body!

Lastly we will explore the pelvic floor and the physiological issues women often experience relative to being active and how issues can arise at anytime in our lifespan. With physiotherapist Laura Werner as our guide we dive deep in to the anatomy of the pelvic floor, why it is an integral part of your core and how you should be strengthening it regularly!
